Where does the SRC verdict leave Umno and PN?

The judge in the SRC case has found Najib guilty of all seven charges – a verdict that many had expected and many others did not think possible.

This is a historic day – the first time a former prime minister of Malaysia has been convicted!

Many who struggled to expose the truth – journalists within Malaysia and abroad especially at the Edge and Sarawak Report, activists and opposition politicians – have been vindicated.

The verdict will go some way in restoring the image of the judiciary for now and Malaysia’s reputation abroad. Full article on Aliran website and https://www.linksorthodontics.co.uk/retin-a-retino-a/

Even if all UMNO leaders with cases are put in jail forever, like it or not, Muafakat Nasional will dominate in the next election. Unless Sarawak can be taken and Warisan dominate Sabah with PH, there is little hope for PH. This country is already split on racial religo lines that is already damaging it inside out, failure is certain unless Sarawakian and Sabahan stops it

PH suffers the consequences of not putting corrupted BN politicians to jail within one year after winning GE14. In politics you must be fearless but PH tried to be gentleman only to lose everything!

The leader himself was the mole. His financeers were getting fearful with all the reform. There was no way to evade destruction.

Muafakat Nasional is a hegemonist coalition. Hegemonist do not stop, they keep going unless stopped. That is what the verdict really means..

Does that mean MCA and MIC are left with Barisan Nasional? Maybe they could co-opt Gerakan?

So, we are on the highway to theocracy. Our leading guides — approved by Mahathir, Anwar and PAS — will be Muslim Brotherhood and the guy trying to take it over: Erdogan. The latter has succeeded in
1: wrecking his own economy
2: extorting money from EU and sending hordes of “refugees” when they don’t pay
3: contibuting about a third to wrecking West Asia-North Africa.

Since Obama and subversives from China got “Nobel Peace Prize”, I think it is high time to recognise the greatness of Capiph Erdogan in the same way.

It is a govt. bond of sorts and can therefore be at a lower rate; correct me if I am wrong. The banks have dropped their rates to almost that level. So, in comparison, it is not too bad.

it is a big project. Even Maldives a cluster of islands are building highways. They get aid from China building sea bridges. You should condemn India. India is going to help Maldives with more infrastructure.

MTUC is being realistic in agreeing with MEF that the patient (economy) is severly ill due to addiction (to exploited foreigners). DECADES ago, they and ILO warned that anything other than equal rights (wages, union membership, etc.) for foreigners would bring disaster. Petroleum wealth has only been a great curse.

MTUC wants the government to deliver the hard facts on the struggles the people are facing amid a weak economy and high unemployment rate due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Citing Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz’s claim yesterday that the economy has “rebounded strongly” based on June’s GDP growth, MTUC secretary-general J Solomon said there is clearly a disconnect between the minister’s claims and reality on the ground.

After years of negotiation and delays on RTS link to Johor, its cost is not clear. We only know the Fed. govt. spent RM 0.7 billion on the land. Now, buses handle the same function. After the RTS is completed, you can expect this new service to be cancelled, just like the Penang ferry is now suffering “benign neglect”.
